It was kind of a failure, due to the limitations of the elementary-school stage.

— Wes Anderson, in 2002, describing a stage version of Star Wars he mounted as a schoolboy in Texas

This from the sidebar next to the Globe's interview with the director about his film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. I've got to say, as someone who saw Star Wars six times in the year of its release (I think it was only the second film I'd ever seen), who still owns all twenty volumes of the Ocean World of Jacques Cousteau encyclopedia set (though they're at my mom's), and who loved Bottle Rocket and Rushmore (I wasn't sure about The Royal Tenenbaums), I can't wait to see this film.
